BEVERLY HILLS—At approximately 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3, the driver of a white BMW 328i, 2008 or later model, ran down a bicyclist in an alley in the 9000 Block of Wilshire Boulevard between Wetherly Drive and Almont Drive.
The BMW driver was caught on a street camera making a quick turn and then pursuing the bicyclist with intent to harm. The bicyclist, who sustained non-life threatening injuries, was purposefully rammed by the vehicle and pinned to a metal rolling trash bin.
